Hi, since many of you have been asking me how far is english important to become a pilot or aviation related jobs.
Lets seek deep into the importance of aviation english. English is the de facto language of the civil aviation world. With the drastic expansion of air related works in the early 20th century there were safety concerns between the pilot and air traffic controllers to establish a flawless communication. Miscommunication has been a factor in many aviation accidents.
Therefore ICAO has made a new requirement of language proficiency in English. This means every pilot or air traffic controllers have to sit for this in order to work in the mainline.
For Malaysians, if you have sat for Malaysia University English Test (MUET) it is somehow similar. Just that it is more towards the aviation world.
